BENEFITING: Boys & Girls Clubs of Chicago, Inc.
EVENT DATE: Oct 13, 2013
This year, I've decided to make sure that all my training for the marathon doesn't just benefit me, but also a worthy cause. Many of you know that I am involved with the Associate Board of the Boys & Girls Clubs of Chicago. The Associate Board is a group of highly dedicated young professionals, passionate about the mission of Boys & Girls Clubs of Chicago.
To goal of the organization is to enable all young people, especially those who need the Clubs most, to reach their full potential as productive, responsible and caring citizens. The after-school hours are the most threatening time for young people, especially those who walk in some of Chicago's most economically challenged neighborhoods ravaged by violence and drugs. Yet, even in these troubled communities, the 18 Boys & Girls Clubs are standing proud and vibrant. The Clubs' doors and our arms are open wide to give young people:
•A safe place to learn and grow...
•Ongoing relationships with caring, adult professionals...
•Life-enhancing programs and character development experiences...
•Hope and opportunity
I certainly appreciate any donation you are willing to make. All proceeds raised go directly to support the continued growth of programs and outreach at Boys & Girls Clubs of Chicago. Thank you,
